"In my humble opinion, the soprano's voice sounds a little bit forced but, by all means, buy this CD if only for oboist John Mack's fluid grace and warm, wonderful sound. The fact is he does much more that accompany the singer: he comes across as a full and equal participant, most especially in the Baroque pieces. The strange thing about this CD is that the first half is Baroque and the second more modern, including Blake songs, etc. Personally, I prefer the Baroque part; I guess it's really a matter of taste, though I feel the two halves don't mesh together all that well. The pianist/harpsichordist too is excellent, as is the quality of the recording but, for me, Mr. Mack's masterful playing is the best ingredient of all."
